White & Pink on Princess Street

Besides the many boutiques and restaurants, one of the great things about living in Old Town is the rich history behind many of the historic homes and streets. Princess Street is one of the few streets that is still paved with cobblestones, and though not friendly to a stroll in heels, is a popular spot for engagement photos with couples from across the metro area. Ted and I enjoy strolling around the streets of Old Town on the weekends, often stopping for lunch or an ice cream cone. We usually vary our route around town because we always notice a historic plaque or cute town home that we haven’t seen before. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend heading over to this part of town for brunch at Jackson 20 or Virtue Feed & Grain and shopping on a Sunday afternoon. Bishop Boutique, Duchess M, and The Shoe Hive are a few of my favorites!IMG_2246IMG_2239 IMG_2225 IMG_2228 IMG_2229 IMG_2230 IMG_2233 IMG_2235IMG_2236IMG_2283IMG_2280IMG_2289IMG_2303

Springtime Sunday Afternoon

Even though the cherry blossoms have bloomed, the weather in the DC area is still waffling between the warm and sunny spring days we’ve all been looking forward to and those when there is still a bit of a chill in the air. For a simple, chic springtime ensemble for those chilly days, I like to pull on a pair of white jeans with a lightweight pastel hued sweater. I love this look since it’s bright and cheery enough for spring, but still warm enough to keep you comfortable to head out for a stroll sans jacket. We often enjoy stopping by Buzz Bakery or Slater’s Market for a little afternoon pick-me-up. Buzz has all sorts of flavored lattes and other goodies like maple bourbon glazed bacon donuts and gluten free vanilla bean scones while Slater’s Market is the closest stop for gelato. What’s your favorite way to enjoy a weekend afternoon?
